adidas is taking big steps towards sustainability. The brand has developed various technologies and processes that all contribute to protecting the earth. Perhaps you've heard of Parley Ocean Plastic? Where plastic waste is turned into new products. But did you also know that they aim for a circular future? One way they want to achieve this is through the Made To Be Remade collection.
The Made To Be Remade products are the very first products for which an end-of-life solution has been devised. The items can be returned after use and then they are made into something new. Check out the process of the Made To Be Remade collection below!
A circular future
In 2019, adidas launched the Made To Be Remade programme, since then we have seen several collections come by. The company aims to create a world where products are no longer simply thrown away. Instead, they are made into something else and the material reused for new products.
The programme breaks the industry's linear production process. The brand believes that shoes and clothing should have more than one life cycle. Whereby the end of one product can be the beginning of the next. This way, together with adidas, you can create a better world!
How does adidas Made To Be Remade work?
New yarn can be made from the returned clothes, which can then be used to produce new Made To Be Remade products. The returned shoes are cleaned and shredded. The resulting raw materials are collected. To produce different elements of a new shoe.
How does it work?
- You wear the item until it can no longer be worn
- You scan the QR code on the item and then send it back to adidas
- adidas turns it into a new product
